You obviously missed:
We'll have to agree to disagree. You persist in stating a mathematical impossibility. I can't argue with that.

Re: Φπ² = 16

Φπ² = 16 This cannot be, because it implies that phi = 16/pi^2. But the left side is algebraic and the right side is transcendental. Those are mutually exclusive classes of real numbers. I'm not sure why you are unable to comprehend this simple fact. Wolfram alpha gives 15.9693553764781319645891701...

What does irreducible mean? If epsilon is an infinitesimal in the hyperreal numbers, for example, then epsilon/2 is a smaller infinitesimal.

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

This is my understanding of the subject matter: Any mathematical category, like real number, is internally consistent if you can reach from one entity to another one. There are two geometrical entities in real number, point and segment. But you cannot reach a point to a segment, by this I mean that...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

By fractal/infinitesimal, I mean a geometrical entity made of point which is self-similar. The Mandelbrot set is fractal but not self-similar, as I mentioned. Secondly, why do you write fractal/infinitesimal? They're completely different things. A fractal is a set of points with fractional Hausdorf...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

I think that monad/infinetisimal is fractal. What does that mean to you? What definition of fractal are you using? What definition of infinitesimal? Or do you mean all this metaphorically rather than mathematically? Point is the smallest substance with the size of zero. This means that 0*"any numbe...

Re: Any geometrical form, infinitesimal/fractal and then point

Consider a geometrical entity. Divide it to infinite number of pieces to get infinitesimal. You will have a difficult time formalizing that. Consider the unit interval on the real number line: the set of real numbers between 0 and 1. With or without the endpoints, it doesn't matter for this discuss...

Re: √5 and Phi

The only co-operative conjunction needed to capture the geometry of this universe is Φ and π: the former as (π+π√5)/2π. Φ is defined as (1 + sqrt(5))/2. If k is any nonzero real number whatsoever, you can multiply the numerator and denominator of a fraction by k and it still represents the same num...

Re: Is this an improved definition of a truth bearer?

A Truth Bearer is an analytical expression of formal or natural language that specifies a relation that can be tested and resolved to a single Boolean value. Wikipedia defines truth bearer as: "A truth-bearer is an entity that is said to be either true or false and nothing else." That strikes me as...

I pointed out that Φ*Φ = Φ + 1

is really

f(x) = x^2 - x - 1 = 0

It's not about Φ!
